Subject: I was actually at this show
A little over a year later I was one of the lucky few who saw the Some Girls tour at the Palladium. Now that was a life-changing event! Saw Paul and Linda as well as Andy Honey and his entourage. Rumors abounded that Lou, John and Yoko were lurking about somewhere.
Subject: HALF STEP!!!!!

Subject: not wasting time enjoying spring dead
Subject: and you don't stop...
seems like the first set is one of the past few nights, only played backwards, but the music plays the band and the double opener has me dancing like there's no tomorrow. and i'm still a hopeless fool for it's all over now, particularly when it's as dagnasty as this one! a concise little cowboy sequence, a few love songs and a fine half-step later we hit the promised land, a great closer - never, ever long enough it seems, but it leaves us wanting more, more, more!
and they then deliver the goods...scarlet gets reunited tonight with its new partner. not as tight as previous nights’ versions, but the merge into good love makes up for it. FOTD is the lay up (that was MY HEAD you broke, bob!) before another solid, but not as trippy as the last two nights, estimated. and then it’s decision time , and yeah, we know how it is, bobby…and then BAM! the st. stephen debut leads the way through a ferocious back end of the set with last night’s jam-only NFA picking back up into a righteously nasty vocal version, lays down a sweet stella blue before completing sammich. one more saturday night is a great closer, hot dam! terrapin is a mighty sweet and much-needed encore.
i'm going to go wander downtown and try to get my space together before tomorrow night.
no wonder this got released by gdp...so f***ing sweet.
Subject: Not too bad...
Subject: Re: GD Download
Two words: BETTY BOARD! 'Nuff said.
Oh, and there are 3 bonus tracks from 4/29, which were not on my previous source for that show, either. All in all, a DAMN strong first release for GD digital downloads.
Subject: You asked for a new source....
the dead have released the show :)
Subject: Very nice AUD
Subject: Very nice AUD
Subject: great show, not so great recording
unfortunately this recording is pretty poor. i've been actively seeking for the past three years to find another source but it hasn't happened yet. this is the only source i come across time and again. theres a major source change in the middle of bertha, its a shame.
still worth the d/l though, at least the first set.
